CEAD Summer and Autumn Prospectus

The Summer and Autumn prospectuses provide details of all courses offered through the Centre for Continuing Education. Course listing and application forms can be found at the end of each prospectus.

Summer courses include preparatory, introductory, intermediate and master-classes.  There is a wide range of Fine Art and Design courses, as well as portfolio preparation courses.  Summer courses run daily from 10am until 4pm, from late June and through July. Typically, Summer courses are of three day or five day duration. Whether you are returning to third level, embarking on a new pathway in art and design, or up-skilling for professional purposes, consider the range of part time courses on offer here at NCAD. 

Autumn courses take place in the evening usually from late September until March annually. Evening courses include a wide range of Design, Fine Art and Visual Culture courses suitable for adults, mature students, as well as school leavers.  Autumn courses include accredited (certificate and diploma) and non-accredited modular options for individuals interested in progressing within art and design higher education.
